We're halfway through June already, but there's still time for me to try to read! I have 2 or 3 stories left in How Long 'Til Black Future Month?, so I have nothing to share with you all, except that this book is AMAZING!
What I will do is share what I plan to read this summer (and unfortunately, the tags are too long, so I suppose I will just put the titles and not the authors in there). Links are below the covers, by which I'm judging these books today.
|Jala's Mask, Michael and Rachel Grinti|
I'm a little iffy about this one. I was really excited to see black characters on the cover, but at the same time, this is not an own voices narrative. I do wonder what made Mike and Rachel Grinti decide to write what looks to be a tribal pirate narrative (already problematic), but I'll see how authentic it feels, or if it's just white characters in blackface.
|Reign of the Fallen, Sarah Glenn Marsh|
|An Ember in the Ashes, Sabaa Tahir|
|Buried Beneath the Baobab Tree, Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani|
|A Natural History of Dragons, Marie Brennan|
What are you reading this Summer?
